407 visa streams

The training visa (subclass 407) has three occupational training streams. True Blue Migration manages applications in the following two streams:

  • Occupational training – sponsorship that allows you to gain the experience required for registration in your occupation
  • Occupational training – undertaking on the job training to develop your skills in an eligible occupation

Employer nomination on a 407 visa

An approved employer must nominate you for a 407 visa. Sole traders and individuals are ineligible to sponsor on a 407 visa.

We work with employers to assist them in preparing the relevant documentation.

The employer must be an approved temporary activity sponsor. If you use a Registered Migration Agent to manage your application, they will assist with obtaining this approval.

Are you eligible for a 407 visa?

For the skills development stream you need to demonstrate that in the past 24 months, you have worked or studied (or a combination of the two) full time for at least 12 months in the occupation that will be nominated.

For the registration stream you need to demonstrate that you have the appropriate qualification and work experience to undertake the occupational training that will allow you to obtain the relevant registration or licencing.

In both streams, your occupation must be on the relevant legislative instrument and your employer will need to prepare a structured training program that addresses your skill gaps. You should be engaged in training for at least 30 hours of the week.

Generally, you must also be over the age of 18, hold health insurance, have sufficient funds to support yourself in Australia, be a genuine temporary entrant, have competent English skills and meet health and character requirements.

Your partner and dependents can be included in your application.

407 visa length

The 407 visa is granted for a defined period up to two years. The Case Officer will determine the length of the visa based on how much training they think you need. At the end of your 407 visa, you may be eligible for another type of visa.

407 visa conditions

You can only work for your sponsor on a 407 visa. You must work at least 30 hours per week and be paid at least the Award rate. If you have a partner included in your 407 application, your dependent has limited work rights of 40 hours per fortnight.

How long does a 407 visa take to process?

A 407 visa is processed in approximately 3 – 4 months. If your current visa is due to expire, we may be able to lodge your 407 visa so you can remain in Australia on a bridging visa during the processing time.
